The Lights of Time by Paul Ian Cross

Well I’m finally out of my reading slump and its all because of this book. I read this book over the weekend and could never put down. When I did eventually put it down I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The whole concept is amazing. It did remind me a lot about time cop (yes the Van Damme film) Engella is a young woman travelling through time running from a group of hunters and trying to find her family who she hasn’t seen for god knows how many years.

Right come on lets get on with the review or we will  be here all day. As I said the story is about Engella who has a nifty wristband that lets her travel through time. Shes on a mission to find her parents while trying to escape from a group of hunters. The hunters are after her as she has something that they need. (im saying nothing more about that as I dont want to spoil the story) Engella has been to some very interesting places and times in the past and the future.

 

The book does offer quite a few different views points. Especially with the different characters and the different times they were in. I thought it may of confused the reader.  I also thought this might struggle to tie in the whole book together but Paul didnt dissapoint. This book tied in really well leaving me literally hanging on edge wanting to read the second book.

If you like a futuristic science fiction read then this is the book for you to add to your collection (and come on the cover is ridiculously awesome)

Mental health is like a rollercoaster

Where do you with a post like this. Literally the past few months my mental health has been like a rollercoaster. It has been horrible. Times I’ve been thinking what the actual fuck is going on in my head. People shouldn’t have to suffer like this. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through this. I wish sometimes there was an off button. I’ve been feeling really tired lately but think that’s due to my brain going into overdrive when Im trying to fall asleep. It even got to the point where I stopped reading books. Which was a really good escape for me to take my mind of things and switch off. Thankfully Im back reading and forgot how much I missed it (but that’s another story) I have noticed lately that my mood swings have been quite erratic. I’ve either been really hyper or in a low mood with myself without even realising. My partner knows the signs if Im struggling. she seems to know the right questions and brings me round. but due to my stubbornness I can be in a rut for while. I think the one I’ve just come out of has been the longest one yet. I always seem to be fine on the outside which means Im good at masking it. I always think that if i show my feelings especially at work or with friends and even other family members i don’t think they would ever judge me. it’s just that Im not one for expressing myself outright especially when Im face to face with someone. my partner is the only one i feel comfortable enough around to talk about it and that’s when she’s nagged me enough for me to talk to her about it. I’m not saying mine is worse than anyone elses. We all deal with this differently. If you’re going through something like this then open up. I know its hard but using my blog to express myself a bit really off loads a lot of weight that I feel like ive been carrying. I feel relieved after ive written it down and if it helps some one then its brilliant. If anyone has any questions please ask. Also speak up about it help yourself, help someone. Thats me signing off from this one. I feel like I’ve written enough and feel better for it. Thank you for your time and reading this.

interacting with authors

I seen this on Twitter a few days ago and was just wondering what you guys thought about?

I personally enjoy interacting with authors. Especially if I’ve enjoyed reading their books. I’d always give them positive feedback.

I’d never contact an author if I didn’t like their book. Nobody needs that negativity. It’s not like they know I’m reading their book 🤣

Unless I’m doing a blog tour. Even if I didn’t like it. I’d leave a review on the positives I enjoyed or would simply DNF it.

Smoking hot fairytail

I won this book through a giveaway that The Bibliophagist was running through her twitter. I was the lucky one and won yay go me. I thought I’d leave a review of this book. Which everyone should go out and buy. I did give this 5/5 on Amazon and Goodreads so doing the same on here.

America’s population is slowly dying due to an epidemic, and Alexander, an ancient, immortal shaman, has medicine that can heal people. It has one small side effect-Alexander’s able to control the minds of anyone taking the drug, nicknamed “dust.”

Alexander plans to take over the country once dust is released to the general public, crushing anyone who stands in the way. He needs just a little bit more of a certain magical ingredient to make the medication work properly: fairy wings.

An intelligent, stunning fairy, Sabrina was also America’s sweetheart-until a video of a crime she was involved in surfaces, nearly destroying her. A year later, she’s finally ready to step back into the spotlight. Together with her bodyguard, Mira, a water spirit in human form, Sabrina’s prepared to start over.

Things are starting to look up until she meets Alexander in a club and goes from social outcast to tortured captive in the blink of an eye. Will she be able to escape the evil shaman and his mind-controlled slaves in time to save herself and everyone she cares about?

My review:

If you think that this book is about fairies and all things nice then your wrong but not in a bad way. You are thrown straight into the deep end of this book which is a good thing. The character build up is good as it moves along with the story nicely not jumping ahead to giveaway the story line as you don’t know what to expect. I literally couldnt put this book down from start to finish. (I’ve even told the Mrs to read it when she gets the chance to) The book is set in modern-day times and has a range of paranormal creatures who are living amongst humans.

There is four main characters in the book a fairy, vampire, mummy and a human. Yeah I know quite a different type of paranormal that wouldn’t usually go together but they make it work.

Action packed book from start to finish you wont be disappointed in this book at all. It leaves you wanting more and i cant wait to read the second book as it leaves you hanging for more. 

the charters in the book are so well written that I take my hat off to the author he’s done such a great job writing this book and look forward to his future endeavours.

 

 

Lost Frequencies: The Soul Prophecies also Q&A with the author

lost freq

 

 

 

I’d like to thank Bridie at Outlet Publishing for reaching out and sending me this book. Also to Caitlin Lynagh for answering my questions.

Q&A first.

When did you first realise you wanted to be a writer?

It was just before I went off to university to study Biology & Geology. I was one of those students who didn’t really know what they wanted to do with their lives and all the academic choices just didn’t seem to inspire me. I wrote as a hobby from the age of thirteen and one day, not long after my seventeenth birthday, I sat down and realised that this was it, writing was what I wanted to do.

How long does it take you to write a book?

Six to twelve months to write the first draft.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

Unorganised chaos.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I’m not sure that this is a writing quirk, but I do play out parts of my stories like mini movies in my head before trying to write them.

How do books get published?

Lots of hard work, determination – and luck! It helps to have a great editor and agent. The process is slow and that’s often hard to get your head around. The real work begins after the first draft is written.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

From many different things; little pieces of ideas from books, movies, art, people I see in the street, conversations, absolutely everything.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I started writing my first book, Anomaly, when I was eighteen. It was published three years later in 2016.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I like to read, craft (a lot!) and paint.

What does your family think of your writing?

They think I’m mad, but they have come to accept my life choices.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

Writing a good book is one of the most difficult things a human can do.

How many books have you written? Which is your favourite?

I have written four books, and my favourite is my most recent book, Quantum Messenger. It hasn’t been published yet but it will be published next year.

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

Read a lot of books and keep reading! You pick up the most valuable knowledge subconsciously.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

I’ve had some lovely reviews from happy readers who have contacted me on social media. It’s good inspiration and motivation.

Do you like to create books for adults?

Yes, I hope that my books can be enjoyed by young adults and adults alike; Lost Frequencies and Quantum Messenger in particular.

What do you think makes a good story?

A story that is inventive in its world and characters. A good story surprises me, but the surprises have to be believable too.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

According to my mother I wanted to be a dentist. I think that had more to do with the fact that they used to give me stickers after my appointment than any real desire to look in people’s mouths.

Now onto the review. I did receive a free copy of the book for an honest review. So here it is.

You are being watched. All your pathways have already been seen.

During a salvage hunt in the desolate wastelands of Planet Iyeeka, a strange naked woman is discovered inside a metal machine. No one has lived in the area for decades.

Ten wise Iyeekens are drawn to the woman through their dreams and eventually follow her, along with the three who found her, through their war-torn land in search of truth. They believe she is the key to saving their dying planet. She has knowledge even she doesn’t understand. Yet.

Who are these aliens she so vividly remembers? What is the significance of this planet Earth and its inhabitants? And why is her knowledge essential in saving their world?

Now if this synopsis doesnt get your mind into to over drive then you best of stop reading and not even leaving a like for my post (I’m only joking. Please leave a like 🤣)

Ehi is found by a group of merchants on the look out for any materials so they can survive in this desolate baron land where nothing should be able to survive. Except Ehi. Who wakes up confused and doesn’t know what is going on or where she is.

I literally could not put this book down. Even when I wasn’t reading the book it was always in the back of my mind how Ehi was going to get passed the tough situation she has found herself into.

The character development is written really well and you start to develop an akin to the characters. The world building is also really well written. Caitlin has done really well in both these aspects to immerse the reader into the world she has so brilliantly created. To the point where you forget your environment your in and you end up hours later with all the pages turning seemingly.

If you are a Sci-Fi Fantasy nut like me then you will really enjoy this book. If you aren’t then I couldn’t recommend this book to get you started.

GUEST POST

COLIN AND ME…

by Peter Bartram

Colin Crampton, the hero of my Crampton of the Chronicle mysteries is a young newspaper reporter. When readers learn that I was once a young reporter, too, the first question they often ask me is: “Are you Colin?”

Well, obviously not. Or, in other words, probably.

Let me explain. I never had quite the adventures Colin experiences or got up to quite such outrageous scams to land my stories – although I had my moments – but there are certainly some similarities between us.

Colin starts his career working on a newspaper in the 1960s – the Swinging Sixties. Just like me. He’s working in a newspaper on the south-coast. Just like me. He has an irascible news editor. Just like I had. And he always finds himself up against a tough deadline. Just Like I did.

But that’s where the similarity ends. Colin is a crime reporter. I was a general reporter. I used to cover many different kinds of stories, but sometimes I did the police briefing each morning. That’s when the local cops tell journalists about anything significant that’s happened overnight. It’s usually an uneasy session when the journos try to weight up what the cops aren’t saying.

And I used to doze on the press benches in the courtroom as endless speeding drivers were fined five pounds. But coroner’s court duty was even worse. Dead boring!

Sometimes, readers ask why I set the Crampton series in the 1960s. One of the reasons was because Colin works on an evening newspaper and the Swinging Sixties was the high point of evening newspapers’ circulation success, before they declined in the face of competition from television news.

But one of the strongest reasons is that the lack of modern technology in those days made the job of producing newspapers that much tougher. We had no computers, no mobile phones, no internet, no Google. Newspaper type was set in molten lead.

When we had to file a story, we needed to find a phone box and dictate it over to a copytaker – a guy wearing headphones sitting at a typewriter. I’ve found that the lack of modern technology makes for so many more plot opportunities in the books.

But one thing never changes. The heart of newspaper life is the hunt for a good story. And in that respect, Colin and I were very much alike.

Avalon’s forces turn up in Clockwork, and Nate’s frustration grows with every passing day his magic doesn’t return. He finds himself trying to stop Avalon’s plans while hiding from enemies who would destroy everything in their path to see him dead.

It wasn’t for another decade that he would start work on a full length novel, the result of which is Crimes Against Magic.

He was born in a small village called Mexborough, South Yorkshire, but now lives with his wife and three young daughters in Southampton.

Things You Didn’t Know About Becoming a Published Author

I’ve been a published author for 8 years now, and a fulltime one for about 4. I’d like to be able to say that there was nothing that surprised me when I first published. I’d like to say that I did my homework to such a big degree that I anticipated everything. But I can’t, because that would be a lie. So, here are a few things that I’ve discovered since becoming an author.

1. People message you to tell you they hate your book.

It’s weird, and I had absolutely no idea it was a thing that happens, but yes people do message or tweet how much you suck. You just ignore them and move on with your day, but it really is quite weird.

And speaking of weird.

2. Some people will leave reviews of each book saying how much they hate this book and will never read another of your books, yet they keep reading the next one.

Yeah, I don’t really understand why anyone would put themselves through reading books they hate, but you know, thanks for spending your money on my book, I guess.

3. I get a say in my cover

I’d often heard that authors don’t get a say in their covers, so I was a little surprised to find out that my publisher actively encourages input about the covers. Now, some of my ideas have been described as, ‘unworkable’, and ‘impossible to do on anything so small and not just be a big blur’, but it’s nice that I get asked my opinion, and told what’s happening.

4. Writing from home is an exercise in self-control

I’ve been lucky enough in my career that I’m able to write fulltime, so that means working from home. My PS4 is at home, and my big TV, and lots of books, and… well, you get the idea. Essentially I could spend all day doing absolutely nothing of value except having fun, and having to switch that part of your brain off so you can work was harder than I’d expected. I always assumed that working from home was just awesome. And it is, but it’s also a big commitment.

5. Book Launch Day is nerve wracking even after book 11.

It never goes away. Ever. Every single book that comes out makes me nervous. Doesn’t matter how well the last book did, it’s the one you’re about to have published that you focus on. I try to just lose myself in work on book launch day.

6. You can easily fall into the trap of becoming insular.

It’s a bit of a problem; especially when neck deep in deadlines or edits, or something along those lines. You start not seeing other humans for several days at a time. I have a wife and three children, so it’s never complete solitude, but there is a bit of a case that I’ll notice I haven’t left the house in a few days. Writing is awesome, but you need to ensure you have a healthy balance of not sitting in your office all day.

7. Getting emails from readers who love the book is the greatest feeling ever.

It really is. It never gets old. When I get an email from someone who thanks me for not writing stereotypical women, or for having a character who reminded them of themselves, it’s just a wonderful thing. It’s not something I thought about before getting published, as it’s not something I ever considered would happen, but a message from a fan really is something pretty special.

That’s 7 things I didn’t know before I became an author, and to be honest I probably could have put a few more down, but I’d be here all day. The thing about being an author is that it’s always throwing up new surprises, but most importantly, it’s simply the best job I’ve ever had.

Steve is a bestselling author of Urban Fantasy. His book, Scorched Shadows, was shortlisted for a Gemmell Award for best novel.

Steve was born in a small village in South Yorkshire, called Mexborough, but now lives with his wife and three young daughters in Southampton.
